A truly awful band from Alberta, Canada. Their music is watered-down hard rock, overplayed (especially on the ROCK radio station near the place I live, and I'm from the United States), and, coincidentally loved by pop music fans, posers, and those with an untrained ear.
Often mislabeled as "post-grunge" or, I've heard someone label them this, and I just about flipped my lid, "grunge" even. They're not even close to being grunge, much less post-grunge.
If Nickelback is anything, they're another nu metal band that's trying to be as cool as Korn, Slipknot, or Limp Bizkit for that matter.
Nickelback fan: "OMG I love Nickelback! They're so awesome and hardcore! They're grunge, baby! Grunge!"
Smart person (sporting a Nirvana shirt): "You idiot. Go listen to the Melvins or Soundgarden or Green River if you wanna hear some real grunge."
